Book reviews of Rupert Murdoch: An Investigation of Political Power
(published as Murdoch's Politics in Britain and the United States)
McKnight gives fascinating detail – much of it new to me – about the extent to which Murdoch funded and continues to fund conservative institutions and individuals
-- Ross McKibbin, London Review of Books, 20 June 2013
McKnight marshals with fresh clarity the evidence that Murdoch’s empire is peculiarly attuned to its proprietor’s whims …. Anger is not McKnight’s forte. Deep research, vivid quotation and plain storytelling are his strengths.
-- David Marr, The Monthly, December 2011
As an anatomy and record of the reign of Murdoch this book is brave and valuable. And one day, when Murdoch is gone, it will help explain why so many obeyed him.
-- Andy Beckett, The Guardian, 20 February 2013
This is a detailed forensic analysis of Murdoch’s power – a compelling study of one man’s obsessions and how he joined those obsessions to his ever-growing influence
-- Norman Abjorensen, ANU, Australian Journal of Politics and History
